The Evil Dead reboot opens in just a few weeks, and in honor of the horror revival, the studio has unleashed 15 gruesomely bloody new pics to get us ready for the carnage.
Sam Raimi’s 1981 original pushed the boundaries of acceptable gore and brutality in film, and it looks like Fede Alvarez’s reimagining is trying to do the same thing for a new generation.
Though the new version won’t feature the iconic Ash character, played by Bruce Campbell in the original series, it doesn’t mean his weapon of choice will be left out of the new movie. The new pics show everything from chainsaw-wielding to buckets (and buckets and buckets) of blood being dumped upon these unsuspecting victims.
The jury is still out on whether the new version is a worthy successor to its namesake, but regardless, they seem to have definitely gotten the memo to make it disgustingly gory.
The new Evil Dead opens April 5.
